Burnt (2015) Poster

(I) (2015)

Bradley Cooper: Adam Jones



  • Adam Jones : If it's not perfect, you throw it away... regardless of time.

  • Adam Jones : I sentenced myself to shuck 1 million oysters. Today is the last day of my penance.

  • Adam Jones : I don't want my resturant to be a place where people sit and eat. I want people to sit at that table and be sick with longing.

  • Adam Jones : [on his restaurant]  We should be dealing in culinary orgasms. When is the last time you had an orgasm that was interesting?

    Helene : Remind me never ever to discuss food with you in public.

  • Adam Jones : People eat because they are hungry; I want to make food that makes people stop eating.

  • Adam Jones : [Listening to his analyst]  Should I be writing this down? Because I don't have a crayon.

  • [first lines] 

    Adam Jones : Jean Luc, my mentor - the guy who gave me a chance as a chef - said to me it was God who created oysters and apples. And you can't improve recipes like that. But it is our job to try.

    Adam Jones : Being a young chef, I sure as hell tried. I spent ten years cooking in Paris and became head chef of Jean Luc's restaurant. I was good. Some nights I was almost as good as I thought I was. 999,696... 697... At least that's what I'm told. 698... 699... Then I destroyed it all. My devils chased me out of Paris and I washed up in New Orleans. I sentenced myself to hard labor shucking oysters. 999,999. And today's the last day of my penance. One million.

    [slurps it down] 

  • Adam Jones : [to Helene]  The problem with being good is you become indispensable.

  • Adam Jones : I love the decor, it's perfect for stoning infidels.

  • Adam Jones : [waking on the kitchen floor]  What is this, hell?

    Reece : Yeah, I suppose it is. Well, the mercy of your enemy is a kind of hell.

  • Lily : You're the ogre.

    Adam Jones : Yes. But I bake great cakes.

  • [last lines] 

    Adam Jones : [sitting down to eat with an exhausted but contented staff]  Thanks.

  • Adam Jones : [to Helene]  Apologize to the turbot 'cause it died in vain. I said apologize!

  • Adam Jones : You know, people pay prostitutes extra to fake orgasms. Maybe Tony pays you extra to fake concern.

  • Tony : Well, if you go, you should take someone with you. Someone to stop you from getting into a fight with him.

    Adam Jones : Oh, you mean like you?

    Tony : No.

    Adam Jones : Your therapist's got a big mouth.

    Tony : Nothing you didn't know. You said in your restaurant everything was possible, but, um, I know not everything is possible. Besides, you're not as pretty as you once were.

    Adam Jones : Hey, Tony. Uh, you hungry? Can I... can I make you breakfast or something?

    Tony : You mean, cook me breakfast instead of falling in love with me?

    Adam Jones : Yeah.

    Tony : No. Thank you. I already ate. But I appreciate the thought. Take someone nice.

  • Adam Jones : [Eating lunch at a burger king in Londan]  What you should have said is that the problem with this place is it's too consistent. And consistency is death.

    Helene : Consistency is what every great chef strives for.

    Adam Jones : No, a chef should strive to be consistent in experience, but not consistent in taste. It's like sex. It's like, you're always headed to the same place, but you got to find new and dangerous way of getting there.
